So it's election time in Canada, unlike the US , we have tough restrictions on election spending by the candidates and our election period is 16 weeks.
Up for re election is Stephen Harper of Canada's Conservative Party. The question ALL Canadians are asking themselves , has he shown himself competent and trustworthy and the flat answer is NO. First these Conservatives have had 9 straight budget deficts, adding hundreds of millions of new debt to the backs of 35 million Canadians. Secondly they are as crooked as they come.
Can we trust Stephen Harper to re elect him and the answer again is NOT A CHANCE. Third of the Canadian Senate Stephen Harper appointed are presently under Royal Canadian Police investigation. Harper's top cabinet aid Dean Dean Del Mastro, Harper's ETHICS spokensman has been sent to jail for corruption. Harper aid Michael Sona has been jailed for preventing electors from voting. Pamela Wallin Harper Senate appointee under investigation for fraud, Mike Duffy another Harper Senate appointee charged with 31 criminal offenses, Bruce Carson former Harper advisor , charged with illegal lobbying, Harper appointee Senator Patrick Brazeau , charged with wife beating ,sexual assault and fraud. ON and on it goes ,conservatives charged with criminal offenses , put in power by Stephen Harper.
Hopefully Canadians won't suffer the same election malady our American cousins appear to be suffering from and sanity will prevail, Canadians will turf this corrupt regime and keep them from power for decades to come.
The last Conservative Prime Minister Brian Mulroney was accused by a German ARMS dealer of taking a cash bribe. Mulroney denied it , sued Canada for libel and was given 2 million dollars in compensation, only to find out years later, the Brian Mulroney had indeed been given $200,000 in cash by the ARMS dealer , which Mulroney NEVER declared as income and had hidden the money away in a safety deposit box for almost half a decade , until a second investigation outted the TRUTH. A Canadian ' truth and reconciliation committee grilled Mulroney for months publicly, but he dug in and claimed it was 'business payment' and the German arms dealer was trying to frame him, so it became a he said he said contest and Mulroney walked away unscathed , with the 2 million from the Canadian government AND the 200 thousand cash found in his safety deposit.
Watch the NDP attack ad on these conservative crooks, 48 seconds long , see for yourself.
